The Shannon 45 is a perfect solution for owners who require an all-weather motor yacht for extended cruising or weekend jaunts offshore. Though designed in the style of a classic trawler, Suis Soleil has a Deep-V planing hull that allows the ship to reach a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots.
The Shannon 45 achieves a cruising range of 700 miles with twin diesel engines and 750 gallons of fuel. The planing hull and flared bow keep water and spray off the deck, giving the Shannon Voyager 45 the ability to cruise at fast or moderate speeds in any wind or sea condition.
Shannon Yachts are better known as a high-end custom builders of sailboats. Her design is a typical trunk cabin cruiser with a complete beam aft sundeck. This makes the aft cabin more significant, and the sundeck has more usable room for family and guests. Two couples can cruise in comfort and safety.
The main salon has a classic look with teak and holly sole. A large chart table is forwarded to the port.
A settee is also to port with dark green leatherette fabric and a high/low table with two side extensions. Also to port is a wet bar with a brass sink, ice maker, built-in wine rack, and a custom liquor cabinet.
Three steps lead to a companionway with hinged doors and a lifting hatch. This feature opens up the salon to the sundeck and provides easy access to the flybridge.
